We had a sit down chat with Sophia Kuyoli Isolemo who has been selected to represent Ghana at Miss Commonweath International scheduled to take place in the United Kingdom in November of this year.

Finding out her plans, vision and how far she want to go in the pageant.

Read the interview below:

Tell us about yourself, educational background and the pageant?

Sophia kuyoli Isolemo is my name, I am 24 years old and the current Miss Commonwealth Ghana culture.  A final year nursing student of the University for Development studies Tamale. I participated in miss earth pageant last year (2016) where I emerged 4th runner-up. Through prayer, hard work and perseverance, today, I am Miss Commonwealth Ghana Culture.

What have you achieved as a queen since you won the pageantry?

As a beauty queen, empowering woman has always been my ultimate goal which is one of the Millennium development Goal three (3). In Africa and Ghana, woman are not given equal opportunities to take part in decision making, it is believed the place of the woman is the kitchen.

In my interest to empower women, I organized seminars where most women where trained on vocational skills such as beads making, Shea-butter making and encouraged to take up leadership positions in the society and the country as a whole.
What challenges are you faced with as a queen?

The most challenged I faced as a queen is financial assistance to embark on my projects. It’s hard to get support from individuals and organizations for some of the projects I have lined up. But, I’m still pushing hard for some.

As Miss Commonwealth culture, what can you tell about international pageant itself (where it is happening and how prepared are you to represent Ghana)

Miss Commonwealth pageant is an international pageant through which we achieve the commonwealth goals through beauty.

As miss commonwealth culture, it is my responsibility to showcase the rich culture heritage of Ghana on the international stage, the unique culture of Ghana which has united us through ages. Our foods, dances and taboos.

Welcome to Ghana where symbols are sense of common identity and destiny. The most important is the black star which evokes the black pride and power and commitment to pan-African unity, which were central themes against British rule.

Other important symbols derive from the Akan tradition that have become incorporated into the national culture. This includes the ceremonial sword, the linguist's staff, the chief stool and the talking drum. The Ghanaian national dress, Kente and smock cloth is another source of common identity and pride.

What do you expect from Ghanaians and how do we support you during the contest.

I urge all Ghanaians, my fans to give me their full support as I represent Ghana in the United Kingdom. I am assuring them that I will give out my best to make Ghana proud.

Any other information you thing is relevant and what people to know.

I love you all and thanks for the prayers and support, please give me same on the world stage to bring the crown home to Ghana. Thank You.
